Gossip Girl: Season 5, Episode 4 :: Memoirs of an Invisible Dan

Oct 18, 2011

This week on Gossip Girl Season 5, Dan’s book becomes a bestseller. But his friends and family abandon him when they discover how he portrayed their characters. Check out Episode 4, "Memoirs of an Invisible Dan," which aired on October 18, 2011.

A Work of Fiction

When not publishing was out of the question, Dan could only remain “anonymous” for so long. His book, which he claims is fiction, is loosely based on his real life. He created characters out of his friends and family, exaggerating their personalities and experiences to produce an exciting read. Unfortunately, while Dan faces success in his career, he faces failure in his relationships. They aren’t happy with the “creative liberties” he took, especially when the world knows that the book is not entirely fiction.

Creative Liberties

In his book, Dan wrote that he and Blair’s character slept together. Of course, nothing beyond a kiss actually happened. But when Prince Louis reads the book, he doesn’t know whether or not to believe Blair. She has so many secrets that could become scandalous once they’re married.


Meanwhile, Diana discovers that Charlie is the mysterious “Ivy” whose phone she and Nate found at the fashion show the previous week. In exchange for keeping her identity a secret, Charlie starts working for Diana, which will ultimately lead to a new web of lies and deception.

Gossip Girl Fashion

Serena mixed a professional Yigal Azrouel Optic Colorblock dress with a casual off-white knit sweater. She spiced up her outfit with a pair of Yves Saint Laurent Baobab Python wedges.

Blair wore a cute and sexy Louis Vuitton Cruise 2010 Blue Print dress with a $2,250 Prada Lino Twist Frame shoulder bag. Ouch! That’ll set you back!

It’s good to think outside of the box. But some fashions are questionable, especially when they have a fantasy creature in its name. Serena wore a crop top with a Haute Hippie Sequined Mermaid skirt. Perhaps this would've been better left in her closet until Halloween.
